This image is what I call a folksy woman. Since I was a child I have been drawing images of people, women especially. These images of women come from my head. One of my friends in graduate school told me my art had a folksy look, so I stuck with that description. My sisters have been encouraging me for years to exhibit these portraits, to at least let them out into the world. I have hesitated because after all they are folksy and I was taught to do non-folksy art in school. I was motivated to show this drawing because I am expanding from my Ukiyoe iPad app images. Although I still have the application on my iPad, it is no longer being sold in the Apple iTunes store for others to purchase. That is disappointing for the growth of that very interesting virtual woodcut printmaking tool. However, this has motivated me to let these portraits out of hiding and delve into doing them.
